I have given Japanese cheesecakes one more chance. I had high expectations when I heard people rave about these melt-in-your-mouth goodness but got disappointed when I finally tried them. No, this pos’t isn’t about the other other famous brands which gave me sighs and a blank stare few months ago.
I got the chance to try this relatively new one after my client meeting in Makati. Didn’t want to brave the rush hour traffic so I decided to get my caffeine fix. Luckily I saw this kiosk at the basement level of SM Makati which serves coffee and got a wide range of breads and pastries. I was looking for something “light” to pair with my coffee and saw the Hanjuku cheesecakes! I thought to myself, I’ve got to give these Japanese cheesecakes another chance. Hanjuku cheese did not disappoint!!! In fact, when I took my first bite, I was torn between savoring the perfect cheesecake and putting on a smile. It was like having a taste of heaven. Not exaggerating, but it felt like the world around me is in slow motion when i took my first bite of the Hanjuku cheese. It was love at first bite! Hanjuku chocolate flavor also tastes divine. These cheesacakes are not to light nor airy and have the perfect sweetness. For P48 each, these half-baked, melt-in-your-mouth treats will surely put a smile on your face.
I also loved their arabica coffee served in a coffee press. This only costs P50 if you order any bread or pastry. Regular price is P75.
Thanks Kumori! I finally found the perfect Japanese cheescake.
